About Me

Due to childhood illness, Laura Hudson has been completely bald since she was nine years old. Laura's hair loss is due to Alopecia Universalis, an auto-immune disorder for which there is no cure.

Laura says, "I would have given anything to have someone tell me they understood what I was going through, that it was OK to be different, that if I just hung in there and was strong I would be victorious. It would have made all the difference in the world. I could have been spared so many doubts, questions and fears. Since I didn't have that person, I want to be that person."

Laura Hudson is a motivational speaker and the Marketing Director for Aviv Moon Productions.

Some Laura'isms...

I was just talking to a friend and coworker and I used a phrase that was funny. She said, "I like that!" I thought it was time I introduced you to the many phrases in my language. Yes - I'll explain them as well.

  • Dang a Rang - This is a phrase I use if I am frustrated. If a car pulls out in front of me - Dang a Rang! If I burn dinner - Dang a Rang! If I stump my toe and it hurts really bad - Dang a Rang!
  • Hot Dog Spaghettios! - If I get a coupon in the mail for a free item - Hot Dog Spaghettios! When one of my kids make a 105 on a spelling test - Hot Dog Spaghettios! If a friend tells me they are picking up the ticket at a restaurant - Hot Dog Spaghettios!
  • Snappy Tap Tap! - This is my way of saying, "you just got told." This only applies in humorous situations though and not in serious ones. If one of my kids crack on their Uncle Todd - Snappy Tap Tap! If my husband tells me I am wrong and I prove that I am right - Snappy Tap Tap! If I beat one of the kids in Guitar Hero - Snappy Tap Tap!
  • Okally Dokally - I know other people use this word, but it is one of my favorites. It is self-explanatory really but... It's time to leave - Okally Dokally! I've got your keys - Okally Dokally. The movie is starting - Okally Dokally!
  • Good Googally Goo! - This is a phrase that I use in moments of disbelief or when someone else has a "duh" moment. If a friend is naming their child something really insane - Good Googally Goo! If my husband tells me that a family member has totally embarrassed themselves in public - Good Googally Goo! When a store has a sign that says that a $4 item is marked down to $4.50 - Good Googally Goo!
  • ______ a Rooni! - I can add the suffix "a rooni" to anything! If you give me piece of candy - Thanks-a-rooni! If you fall and break your toe - Yikes-a-rooni! If you ask me if I want onion on my sandwich - Nope-a-rooni!

So there you have it! When you experience certain things in life, you now have a phrase to go with it! If I think of more - I'll surely add them.

Do you have any phrases that you made up for certain situations?


  1. Love your Laura'isms, here are a few of my 'isms... hope you like them.

    Snarf- When I find something frustrating or if I get a minor owie.

    BLANKINBAKER- used to express exuberant delight or triumph.

    Pumpernickel- as a response when someone say, "well, what can you say?"

    Groovational- When saying, "groovy" just won't cut it.

  2. Hahaha, it's nice to know there are other folks that make words and phrases up too. LOL. when I was a kid, I did that all the time. My best friend and I made a word up that we'd say if we were about to get into trouble, a sort of a warning to each other. We'd shout out, "Aberjabla!" before running away. I've now added that word to one of my children's books.

    Another word I use in my children's books is Bellyguts. I use it for flatulance. LOL.

    Whoopy snoopy for big deal

    Hobbly Gobbly for yummy

    Tomyatoes for Crikey.

    I have many more. It's fun.

    Thanks for sharing yours, Laura. They are great!

  3. You haven't got a twitter button. Laura. I was going to tweet it, not sure you want me to though.

  4. Those are great ladies! I may have to add some of those to my vocabulary!

    Trish - the Twitter button is just below the question, "Do You have any phrases that you made up for certain situations?" It is in black and white until you scroll over it. Tweeting it would be great! Thank you SO much!

  5. Okay, thanks, Laura, I just Twittered it and also Facebooked the link too. You should add stumblupon too. That's a great website, though I haven't added it yet on my blog. I should.

    Also, I noticed there is no box to received an email update to newer posts. I only realised you commented after seeing your latest post on Facebook.

    I'll also send you an email as I wanted to ask you something.

    1. Hi Trish! The subscribe button is to the left, right above my bio. I'll try to rearrange the blog today so that those type of things stand out more prominently.

      Thanks so much!
